Famous quotes containing the words wing and/or fore:

    The broken pillar of the wing jags from the clotted shoulder,
    The wing trails like a banner in defeat,
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    It was the most wild and desolate region we had camped in, where, if anywhere, one might expect to meet with befitting inhabitants, but I heard only the squeak of a nighthawk flitting over. The moon in her first quarter, in the fore part of the night, setting over the bare rocky hills garnished with tall, charred, and hollow stumps or shells of trees, served to reveal the desolation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
